Re: FRSky XJT is On its Way to Me; Where is the Smart Dashbo

Smart port display is out now according to frsky forum.

I like the idea of GPS pos displayed on my phone!
I have the taranis and its great, but screen resolution is rubbish.

Re: OpenTX 2.1 - Discussions about new features

I noticed there are just 4 telemetry screens in 2.0.99, where as 2.0 we can have 7 lua telemetry plus the normal ones, 4 should be enough though but would it be easy to add more if needed later? Sorry if there is a better place to ask please tell me.

Re: Orange DSM Module Photos

Thanks, I fly park foamies on it and they are usually around 1m warbirds and biplanes, so would be a bit further out the micros, maybe 300ft or so at times, but I am putting my gliders on frsky!
I am still undecided as to putting the aerial inside?
What kind of range are you getting?

Re: Orange DSM Module Photos

With regards putting the frsky aerial inside the orange module, did this work out well or not, I am considering doing the same thing.
